It was a busy week in tech-land. We covered the iPad Mini launch earlier this week, and now we turn to Microsoft, which launched Windows 8 and its Surface tablet. Kevin Tofel stops by to give you all you need to know about the rumblings from Redmond. Then Mathew Ingram pops in from the Great White North to talk about the downsides of disruptions. Finally, it’s the most wonderful time of the quarter — earnings! Erica Ogg and Tom Krazit run down the numbers for Apple, Amazon and more.
